Florida Keys Real Estate Activity - October 1st to October 14th, 2012

Everyone says this is the slow time of the year, but the first two weeks of October have been anything but slow.

144 new listings were placed on the market, 90 properties went under contract and 51 properties were closed on. Not a bad start to October!

New Listing - 27364 Dominica
One of the new listings will probably have a very short marketing time - it is a wood frame home on open water listed for just $599,000.  This 3 bedroom, 2 bath home is on Ramrod Key and has a boat dock and a private boat ramp. It also has a nice storage area downstairs. I expect to see a quick sale on this one!

Pending Sale - 158 Biscayne Blvd.
Pending sales include a nice home in Port Antigua, in Islamorada. This large 3 bedroom 3 bath home is on a lot overlooking a canal and private island - with no other homes across the canal. It is well maintained and is only 4 lots from the open bay. It was listed at $995,000 at the time of sale.

Sold Listing - 163 Galleon
Sold listings include a nice canalfront home in Treasure Harbor, Islamorada.  This 3 bedroom, 2 bath home has an in-ground pool, as well as an additional 1 bedroom, 1 bath guest apartment downstairs.  There is also additional storage and covered parking. It was originally listed for $869,000 and sold for $720,000.  Another home just across the harbor - 216 Treasure Harbor - is still on the market and listed at just $650,000.

803 Bonito Lane, Key Largo, Florida Keys

I could wake up to this every morning . . .

The view from 803 Bonito Lane, Key Largo

In fact, for a short time, I did.  This oceanfront home was the scene for my wedding three years ago, so it holds a special place in my heart.

This 3 bedroom 2.5 bath home is centrally located in Key Largo and offers breathtaking ocean views.  Located at the end of a quiet lane, the home also features an in-ground heated swimming pool, lush tropical landscaping and is fully gated.  The ground level of the home features an additional two rooms and a bath downstairs, as well as a screened patio. Main living level has spacious open floor plan with newer appliances, granite counters and a custom seating area for dining.  The third floor is a private master suite, with walk-in closet, spacious master bath and private open porch with incredible views.

Outdoors, you'll find the pool, a sandy backyard and an outdoor shower.  The property is fully fenced and has several areas for casual entertaining and relaxing in the sun, or enjoying a swing in a hammock under a shady tree overlooking the ocean.

The property is currently offered at $1,695,000.

Call or email for more information or for a private showing.
